TO:
ALL MEMBERS OF FRONTIERS FOUNDATION & NEW FRONTIERS ABORIGINAL RESIDENTIAL CORPORATION, ALL MEMBERS OF THE OPERATION BEAVER DIVISION & PROJECT AMIK RESIDENTS' COMMITTEE, AND ALL OTHER ABORIGINAL ORGANIZATIONS, PLUS ALL SUPPORTING NGOs, SERVICE CLUBS AND CITIZENS' GROUPS

On Nov. 24-25, 2005, Prime Minister Paul Martin promised national Aboriginal leaders at Kelowna five billion dollars for housing, health and education. This crucial commitment has since been ERASED by the Harper government. Instead, at least twenty billion has been contracted for 65 new American warplanes, all to be bought from and build by Lockheed Martin in the U.S.A. This fortune could produce 200,000 new, safe, warm, healthy homes and employ/train a million Canadians to do the job.

We simply cannot tolerate Ottawa's strangulation of nationally and desperately needed activity on Canada's number one priority need: Affordable Housing.
